ScotRail is adding more seats to trains from Aberdeen for the Betfred Scottish League Cup final at Hampden Park.
Celtic play Aberdeen on Sunday at 3pm and ScotRail has confirmed it will put extra carriages on trains between Glasgow and Mount Florida – the closest station to the stadium.
Aberdeen supporters are encouraged to consider their travel options, as the three trains to Glasgow prior to kick off, and three trains to Aberdeen after the match, are expected to be very busy.
Additional staff will also be on hand to assist customers, but ScotRail has also warned fans that alcohol bans will be in place.
ScotRail Alliance head of customer operations, Phil Campbell, said: “This is a really big game and we’re looking forward to helping fans get to the match to cheer on their side.
“We will be adding extra carriages to services to try to make things a bit easier for people travelling to and from Hampden.
“But trains will be busier than usual and so we encourage people to plan their journey in advance and make sure they have their ticket before boarding.”
Aberdeen Central MSP Kevin Stewart said: “This is excellent news for Dons fans across Aberdeen and the north-east.
“I’m delighted that ScotRail listened to my calls to improve their transport options to the game.
“These extra carriages should make it that bit easier for folk.”
